I just so happen to be going on holiday to Hong Kong soon and was looking at procuring a RIF there. I do not know if my UKARA membership is active or not, and even if it was, it would expire before my return. So my question is: would it be acceptable for me to paint the RIF in the bright colours exceeding 51% of the surface area of the RIF, and bring it back in my suitcase? The airline's webpage states that I would need to inform them of this as it is an IF, though I don't believe we need documentation to buy an IF or import an IF, just for a RIF. At what point would someone question say "that's RIF, not an IF, and you need a defence"?
